Bicycles in the Kibbutz

As a part of family vocation I’ve spend few days in the Kibbutz Ashdot Ya’acov Ichud, located in Jordan Valley, 5 km from the Sea of Galilee. I’ve discovered a wonderful world of bicycles that is very typical to Kibbutz. Most of the bicycles are dated from 60’s and 70’s by local Israeli manufacturers (HOC, DAHAR, ICM) because kibbutz was obligated to by only local products. Some bicycles are custom made tricycles. I visited the bicycle  workshop operated by the kibbutz member Yossi Harel for more than 30 years. It was a wonderful discovery, I’ve enjoy that very much!
